The Lloyd Doblers

My high school English teacher once wrote a comment at the end of my class journal entry, "Lloyd Dobler is the perfect guy for you."  I don't really know what that means.  I'm guessing everyone would say this character stands out as a "guy a lot of girls would want."  But what made him choose this specific guy?  Is it because most girls swoon and want to be with a Lloyd Dobler?  I tend to shy away from the guys all girls swoon over.  Shy being the operative word.  I just let them get attention from all the chatty girls while I quietly wonder if they would like it if I baked them a pie. :)

"This girl was different. This girl made me trust myself man. I was walking around feeling satisfied. Can you imagine that?" -Lloyd Dobler

I think I like this Lloyd Dobler guy.  I want to help a guy trust himself and encourage him until he feels satisfied.  I don't know if Lloyd Dobler is the "perfect guy" for me, but I think the vast majority of women who swoon over this character are onto something.
"She's gone. She gave me a pen. I gave her my heart, she gave me a pen."
-Lloyd Dobler

Man, but what an honor it would be to get to try to take care of a man's heart.  I've heard from everyone in my life it's not easy, but seriously what an honor.......to be trusted with someone's heart.  Those of you out there holding somebody's heart, consider the good you could do.

"From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked."  Luke 12:48
